Basic Ballet for Adult Bodies
Dance is a great way to center the body and work your balance, strength, flexibility, and posture. It doesn't take a "dancer's body" to learn these moves. Anyone can learn these basics and use them in everyday life. Join us for this slow-paced, relaxed, beginning dance class.
What You’ll Need:
• Wear comfortable clothes that allow easy movement.
• Wear socks or ballet shoes, if available.
• Have water and a towel nearby.
Visual Journaling is an opportunity to combine creative expression with one's unique everyday needs and desires. This workshop is great for those who are looking for a new and inspiring way to visualize one's thoughts, emotions, schedule, and to-do lists in a fun organized manner.
In this workshop we will paint images that reflect natural scenes and human made objects. Landscape Watercolor allows for this combination to be done via realism (as things appear to exist in life), surrealism (with elements of surprise or distortion), or abstraction (not representing external reality).
Playwriting: Creating a Monologue
We’ll investigate the elements of an exciting monologue including character, objective and point of view. Through writing exercises, you’ll generate a variety of words and ideas which you can use to create a focused moment onstage. There will be time for optional sharing.
Mindful Magic Markers
Magic Markers provide a space for adults to let go of the prescribed expectations of what constitutes art and allow themselves to play while creating fun and inspiring pieces of art. We will explore techniques that help us rediscover the joy of working with the vibrant colors of magic markers.
